Organelle and Monome


#1

Total shot in the dark, but based on tech specs and info already released, will it be possible to interface with say a 40h and code something that functions similar to polynome on the organelle?

Apologies if this was covered already in the previous organelle post


#2

might need to assess the power draw capabilities. organelle isn’t open source is it?


#3

According to the product page, it is open source. But it only lists 2 USB ports, no info on power from them

If power isn’t avaible, the ext5v could be used for this purpose, correct?

hi i am hunting for the thread that link these two
I have an extra "reseacrh’ organelle i am willing to try to get these to talking but i dont want to reinvent the wheel


#6

seems you found it

@quilime built a working foundation for uniting the two tools


#7

Yes, @quilime’s work is documented in the Organelle forum thread I linked to above, and also this thread:

@tehn
Organelle is open source! 1GHz ARM Cortex A9 with 512 MB RAM, runs Pure Data on Arch Linux.

@shreeswifty
I have my Monome 128 Gray Scale working via serialosc on the Organelle. I use a powered external USB hub. When plugging my 128 grid in directly to one of the Organelle’s 2 USB ports, it doesn’t get enough juice. The grid works, but half lights up. A 64 grid should be fine.


#9

I know this is an old thread, but has anyone recently used a 128 grid with the Organelle? I’ve been digging around trying to find more info, but I still only see the one patch by @quilime.

I finally decided to pull the trigger and ordered the one twenty eight last night. Stoked to try to use it with my Organelle.


#10

Hey there. Yep, works! I’m not the only one, there’s more patches coming soon. There’s some updates I’m working on for the Organelle OSv3 and getting SerialOSC working properly as a daemon with an installer. You can follow progress in the C+G forum here. There’s progress getting some Aleph apps going, too.

My current patches (for Organelle OSv2) are here – It still works with OSv3, but must be in the root of the Patches/ folder.

Awesome, thanks!!! Can’t wait to dive in!

Cheers!


#12

have also got this working today, thanks to @quilime’s excellent work!

here’s a quick 4-track asynchronous drum machine i made today as a test patch.


#13

Sounds awesome!!!

For completeness of this thread, the new patches are published here:

#14

excellent, looking forward to checking out these monome app ports when i get home tonight. (fwiw, i used this auto installer patch yesterday and it worked flawlessly!)


#15

started working on a basic implementation of mlr functionality for monome + organelle tonight. anyone else using these two for live looping/sample slicing?


#16

Wow, if you could pull this off…
Not using my Organelle for live looping, but having an MLR patch running on it could make me buy a grid again.


#17

this is awesome.
i performed solely with mlr for years, and since getting a grid again and ansible/teletype i’ve been ITCHIN’ to get mlr running again. thanks for doing this, and please post your code sometime!!!

#18

Nice work - will be keeping a keen eye on the development of your patch - would be great to have mlr in such a compact setup.


#19

Also wrote on the Organelle forum but:

Just installed Serialosc. Here is a picture of the 128 Grayscale plugges directly. Not sure if it is less stable without hub but everything seems to work for now. Got to do some more testing :slight_smile:
Not using the Original power adapter btw. Don’t know if that has anything to do with it.

Btw: Is there a small quantization on the keys? Just testing with the Poly patch with the wooden buttons I can get notes so short that I can’t even really hear the pitch. With the Monome I can’t seem to get it as short. Also not sure if there is a tiiiny bit more latency with the Monome?

Also: Can we flip the rotation like I can do in the settings on my Mac? The usb should reeeaaally be on the right side where the ports are.

@KristofferLislegaard

haven’t really noticed any monome latency myself.

rotation should be possible using the following message to serialosc in pd:

/sys/rotation 180
